A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. You've probably seen them - they are colorful images with distorted text at the bottom of Web registration forms, such as the one above. They are used to prevent abuse from "bots" or automated programs, usually written to generate spam, from accessing a website. Since artificial intelligence cannot read distorted text as well as humans can, bots cannot navigate sites protected by CAPTCHAs.
About 60 million CAPTCHAs are solved by humans around the world every day. In each case, roughly ten seconds of human time are being spent. Individually, that's not a lot of time, but in aggregate these little puzzles consume more than 150,000 hours of work each day. What if we could make positive use of this human effort? Thoughtware.TV has joined forces with reCAPTCHA and integrated the technology that does exactly this!
